Entering their shared apartment, Minju stumbled tirelessly onto the dark space. It was the usual for her, dashing straight to the bar after a busy day at work and going home drunk.


"You're drunk again." A voice resounded through the empty living room. A stern voice that is still laced with concern.


"And what about it?" Surely enough, Minju was very irritated by just hearing that voice. Minju made her way to the couch, still stumbling a bit. The light turned and lo and behold, Kim Chaewon was standing right infront of her, her figure leaning onto the cold wall.


"If you aren't aware, we're engaged." Chaewon started off as she sat beside the younger. 


"What will other people think when they see you. An engaged woman wilding at the bar every night?"

Minju silently ate her breakfast, her eyes looking up to the short haired girl from time to time thinking that she wasn't that noticeable.
